A ban on the “bump stock” devices that made the Las Vegas attack so deadly would enjoy broad public support, according to a new poll. Yet gun policy experts say a ban would probably have a negligible effect on mass shooting deaths.
“Bump fire stocks” haven’t been used before in a mass shooting. Only in certain circumstances would they be of much help to a would-be killer. They are novelty gadgets.
A lot of gun owners are up in arms about the NRA’s position on this, but Murdoc thinks it’s the best course at the moment. Let the BATFE, the same BATFE that already decided that the devices were not in violation of federal law, review it. Let emotions cool before rushing to do anything.
Umarex® ARX® Ammunition represents the next generation of muzzleloading and airgun hunting technology. Precision-engineered at the pioneering PolyCase® Ammunition development lab, Umarex ARX ammo incorporates patent-pending innovation that enables extreme hunting performance. Constructed from an advanced polymer-copper matrix, the Umarex ARX SpeedBand™ and SpeedBelt™ bullets will revolutionize terminal performance in both muzzleloading and airgun hunting.
PolyCase ARX technology acts as a force multiplier in muzzleloader and airgun ammunition, simultaneously dispersing kinetic energy both forward and laterally. ARX non-expanding ammo provides maximum hydraulic displacement and terminal energy transfer to targets. This high velocity, flat-shooting projectile provides exceptional performance in mid and big-bore air rifles when combined with Umarex SpeedBand or SpeedBelt polymer sabots.
Umarex ARX Ammunition elevates pre-charged pneumatic air rifle performance into the 21st century with four of the most popular air rifle chamberings. The groundbreaking Umarex SpeedBand sabot was developed for use with Umarex ARX bullets in .357, .40 and .45 caliber while the base-style SpeedBelt sabot was designed for use with .50 caliber Umarex ARX ammo and performs flawlessly in both muzzleloaders and the new Umarex Hammer™.50 caliber big bore air rifle.
The polymer formulation of Umarex SpeedBand and SpeedBelt sabots creates a powerful seal in barrel lands and grooves, blocking the passage of air to swiftly drive the projectile down the barrel. Upon exiting the muzzle, captive air pressure on the sabot forces release of the high velocity, light-weight ARX ammo, which maximizes momentum and delivers un-paralleled terminal performance on target.

The RA-140 single-stage drop-in trigger group is a high-performing, cost-effective upgrade to replace mil-spec triggers:
RISE Armament, the maker of the highly acclaimed RA-535 Advanced-Performance Trigger, is pleased to introduce the Black Fallout RA-140 Super Sporting Trigger (SST) for modern sporting rifles. The single-stage drop-in trigger group has a clean break with a short reset. The RA-140 SST has a 3.5-pound pull weight and a comfortable, rounded trigger.
“A sector of the market has been underserved. Until now, there wasn’t a quality trigger group available around the $100 price point,” says Chris Barger, president of RISE Armament. “The RA-140 performs as well as trigger groups that are double the cost. Now, no one has an excuse to use a mil-spec trigger.”
The RA-140 SST retails for $119 but is available for an introductory price of $99. It is available at JSE Surplus, Fatboy Tacticial, Ground Zero Precision, Primary Arms, and Red Barn Armory.
“Upgrading the trigger is one of the most important, impactful, and easy changes people can make to their rifles. It’s incredible how much more accurate and enjoyable a good trigger is when compared to the mil-spec triggers that come standard in most weapons,” Barger adds.
Like all RISE products, the RA-140 SST is manufactured and assembled in RISE’s Oklahoma-based facility according to stringent AS9100 aerospace requirements. It is precision CNC machined from high-grade, heat-treated tool steel and aluminum. Each trigger group is contained in a black 8625 hardcoat anodized aluminum housing. Its self-contained design makes it easy to install with no fine-tuning needed.
Years of practical experience as an assaulter, pistolsmith, competitive shooter, industry consultant and trainer have formed the basis for the Vickers Elite-Larry Vickers’ signature Wilson Combat model 1911. The Vickers Elite combines many of our time tested custom handgun features and ads some new modifications as requested by Larry to create a unique signature pistol with universal tactical appeal.
The Vickers Elite starts with our precision machined and hand fitted forged slide and frame combination along with our match-grade barrel for impeccable reliability and precise accuracy. Renowned Wilson Combat hand-fitting to rigorous specifications yields a pistol that you can count on regardless of the shooting scenario at hand.
The Vickers Elite wears the Vickers Tactical logo on the slide and on the proprietary G-10 grips to immediately identify this model in the field.
A special .45 caliber Wilson Combat magazine was also developed for this model with extensive input from Vickers based on his deployment experience. The Vickers Duty Magazine has a reinforced, solid tube for added strength, a newly engineered follower with sand cuts and a last round retention feature. The standard coil spring has been replaced with a stainless flatwire spring for the ultimate in long term feeding reliability in extreme environments and hard use. An extended steel base pad has been added to make this magazine the new standard for tactical use.
